EEK is right, taxy!! for $90.00, you can practically buy, cook and render fat from four ducklings, weighing roughly a total of 40 lbs. but hey, i'll trade you our duck fat for your prescription drug prices in canada, taxy.

Good way to look at it Vit. We get some bargains and you guys get other ones.

I would love to, but Stirling finds duck far too greasy. He's a white meat kinda guy.

The only local place I have found duck fat is a walk-in Williams Sonoma shop where I got a jar of Rougie (label says "product of Canada"), 11.28 oz. for $14.95. You might check to see if it's on-line. Our local Whole Foods is about 30 miles south. I don't know how much theirs is, but with the price of gas right now I probably won't be finding out any time soon. I'll just be really stingy in using this little jar.

Thank you for the reminder that we have duck fat here in Canada. I googled and found at the Brome Lake (Quebec duck producers) site:

RENDERED DUCK FAT
Package: 300 g
Available at IGA, Loblaws, Provigo, Metro and Farm Boy

RENDERED DUCK FAT
Package: 870 g
Available at Costco


I have at least one of each of those stores, except Farm Boy, within a 4 km radius of my home. I will be looking for those packages. w00t!

All righty, then!

I bought a bag of little bitty round yellow potatoes yesterday and plan to use some of my precious duck fat on them with the yummy-sounding/looking recipe on Page 1 of this post. Oh boy!

A relative is doing a New Year's Eve party and asked for suggestions for appys. Naturally I thought of this potato recipe and although I was planning to make it tomorrow night myself, I roasted them today so I could give her a report before she tries it at her gathering. Mine were just the marble-size potatoes. They were very good - creamy inside and almost like miniature baked potatoes in taste.

While they were roasting, I was wondering if my relative has (1) a cast iron skillet for roasting or (2) rosemary or (3) a source for duck fat. So I tried microwaving a dozen or so from those I had left -- for 3 minutes. Put them on a plate and sliced them in half and salt & peppered them while some canola oil heated in a skillet on top of the stove. When the oil was hot, I put the little taters in face-down and got them nice and brown. They were good, but not as good as those oven-roasted ones.

Sticking them with a toothpick for serving, I think they would both benefit from having a sour cream dip. I'm waiting for them to cool so I can report whether she can serve them room temp or need to keep them warm.

On serving them room temp or cold -- I think these rosemary potatoes would make a nice little potato salad on a toothpick, with maybe a sliver of raw onion and a little chunk of carrot and/or pickle. Don't know how to add hard-boiled egg...but a mayonnaise-based dip would make it salad-like. Maybe grate egg yolk on the dip.

holler, if you need some help with the potato dressings and tastings, tin, i'm here for you.:)
seriously though, what size are your wee spuds, tin? are they red or white skinned? not that i'm prejudiced, or anything. i'm thinking to buy some yukons from bulk bins, where i can pick out a few pounds of the smallest spud-babes there. they won't be appy sized like yours, tin, but i'm only going to be feeding and pleasing myself for new year's....pp's blackeyed peas (in another thread today) look so enticing that i must try his dish for new year's. his recipe looks too cinchy to mess up, even for me.:)


please help me find the thread where pp's bep dish and recipe appear. it is not in the dinner thread as i had thought.

Duck Fat Roasted Rosemary Fingerling Potatoes [IMG]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GmzmEC0Dr_E/UNoDUAuuwAI/AAAAAAAABB0/e_5kgJm586c/s1600/Cleaned+Up+Potatoes.jpg[/IMG] Duck Fat Roasted Rosemary Fingerling Potatoes Recipe: 2 lbs of multicolored fingerling or marble potatoes 3 tablespoons of duck fat 1 tablespoon dried or fresh rosemary Salt to taste Add potatoes to a pot of cold, salted water. Cook on high until just soft enough that you can easily insert a paring knife. While the potatoes are boiling, heat a cast iron skillet in a 400 F oven. Once the potatoes are soft, drain and set aside. Take the skillet out of the oven and add the duck fat. It should melt almost instantly. Add the potatoes, rosemary, and salt, and toss to coat. Put the potatoes in the oven, and roast for 20 minutes or until the potatoes start to brown. 3 stars 1 reviews
